I have heard the opposite, sleddog.

I personally know of two guys that tried this exact combination, 400 w/
351C 4V heads. One guy races a '76 Gran Torino where the displacement is a
factor and he didn't want a big block. The other poor guy is a trucker w/
a '79 F350 4x4. The drag racer is happy. The trucker is not.

W/ the 4V Cleveland heads on the M-block, there is almost no power below
2000 rpm. OTOH, the drag racer claims his motor is good for at least 500
hp over 6000 rpm.

My most sincere condolences on your baby.

With regards to the "lady" of questionable ancestery (or is that
incestry) I believe Blake Clark said it best when he described the owner
of a M$#!! Ben$, "It's a law out here that when you buy a Benz you have
the attitude surgically installed. The operation is usually done by a
proctologist!!"

Stick to your guns in dealing with the insurance company. They will
want to total it or just give you market value for the truck. When this
happened to me I was 'Lucky' enough to have had the lady hit my truck,
my tree, and my house. I was able to get enough payoff from the house
and tree to fix the house and leave extra for the truck. They wanted to
total the truck but I asked them what the max they would pay without
totaling it was. They told me and I went to a body shop and got an
estimate for less than that amount. Then when I got it fixed I used the
extra money from the tree to cover the extra charge to really fix the
truck. This fixed my truck and the title does not say 'salvaged' on it.
Still it was a real pain.

Good luck

Sorry to hear about the truck. I know what your going through.
Some snot nosed kid pulled a uturn on me when my " new/used" lincoln was
one month old. Wiped out my right rear quarter and suspension and knocked
his k-car bumperoff. The kid was 16, got out said sorry, and started to
get in his car I grabed him and made himsit down on the side of the road
till the cops came. The cop took all the info and let him go. I had to
swear out a warrent to have him ticketed! The insurince co and I fought
for a month to set damages. I finaly threated to sue and they decided that
I was right.Good luck

Unfortunately this is true. I was sorely disappointed when I read this
book, since the cover art promised so much more. I almost wanted to take
it back to the store, but there were some nice pictures on the cover :-).

In this book, Mr. Ganahl makes reference to the FE engines still being in
production, which would put the writing date at sometime before 1976. At
that time, the M-block had not yet appeared in a Ford truck, since it was
essentially a replacement for the FE 360 and 390 engines in trucks. The
351M did not even go into production until 1975, just before FE production
ceased, and it would have been a very new engine at the time Mr. Ganahl
wrote this book.

Mr. Ganahl admits (somewhere around page 15 or so) that he has never even
seen the inside of a 351M engine, since they are "not that popular in speed
shops." When I read this, I began to strongly suspect that the
distinguished Mr. Ganahl did not really know what he was talking about when
it came to the M-block engines. His speculation about dropping a 351W
crank in a 400 block merely confirms this.

IMHO, if you are interested in the nuts-n-bolts details of the 335 series
or 385 series engines, the Tom Monroe book ("How to Rebuild Ford V8
Engines" ISBN 0-89586-036-8) is the way to go.

Ken,

Another thought, you may not want to bring up to the insurance company
any modifications from stock configuration such as your drum to disk
conversion. You and I and everyone else on the list understands that
the conversion is almost a stock swap and provides a safer vehicle with
better stopping ability, but the insurance company might look at it as
an opportunity to stick it to you. "The vehicle was modified by the
owner who is not a 'qualified brake service person' therefore it had a
compromised braking system. If it had been left stock and properly
maintained the driver of the truck would have been able to stop and
avoid hitting our blameless client.......(blah blah blah weasle noises
etc)". I'm not suggesting hiding the work or lying, just don't
volunteer it.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Hi Gang!
Reading these post on insurance settlements only goes to show the power
given to Insurance Companies through apathy. If you are at fault you get
what you pay for. If you are not at fault, you are not obligated to take
what they offer. You have a right to recover your loses by means of repair
or replacement. Who gives a rats butt what they say the value of your
property is. Demand repair or replacement of your property. The person
responsible for the damage is still the one responsible for our loses. We
are all victims of Insurance companies criminal acts. Yes I hate Insurance
Companies and their Agents. No matter what you think the law is, you are not
required to have insurance to drive, there is another option. I do not have
all the facts but will get the information if people are interested. You can
have a bond (I believe it's $40,000) in lieu of auto insurance. First kill
the Lawyers, second kill the Insurance Agents.
My apologies to the members of this list for my outburst. If any member
is and Insurance Agent and is offended by my remarks, "Bite me"!

That's kinda funny.. I've been thinking for quite a while of building
a nice tubular bumper for the F100 and was thinking yesterday about
using it for an air storage tank!
Two 6' tubes with 4" O.D. and 1/8" wall thickness gives 6.88 gallons.

Years ago I worked for a company that had several Ingersol Rand
IR-750's in their rental fleet. 750CFM 90PSI!!
They use about 40 gallons of ATF for compresor oil.
One day one of them was being run out in the yard and the line
to the oil seperator popped and blew about 25 gallons of ATF all
over the owners wifes cadillac seville before someone got it shut down!
Fortunately only a *couple* gallons sprayed in thru the open drivers
side window. (-:
She wasn't very well loved by the employees anyway and we got
a near fatal dose of laughter over that one...
I've also worked on a IR-1500.
You guessed it... 1500CFM 90PSI!! 852cid V-12 2-stroke diesel
to power it. (detroit) YEOW!

Naw, copper is fine. Depending on the diameter schedule 40 copper is
good for several hundred PSI.
The line from the pump to the tank on my 2hp Craftsman is copper
from the factory... I've got a 15' coil of 5/8" sch40 copper for
a cooling line between the tank and my water seperator and it's been
there since 1986 now and see's 130+PSI on a daily basis.
The 1/2" type M copper water pipe in my house says 250psi right on it..

I'm learning something every day. Stuart, while you have that book out
what years did Ford use the t-18? and what was the First year for the
NP435?. It must have been one of the longest production items of all
time. I had on in my 87 F-150.

I'm sorry I can't quote the post but I'm in digest mode and it is too
complicated. It was written that the 351M and 400M were the same except
crank and pistons. It was also said that the 400M could be tweaked with 351C
parts to go toe to toe with a 460. Wouldn't it be possible to ream out the
351M cylinders and build it as a 400? I'm sorry if my ignorance is showing.

Plenty of witnesses (it was on a backed up interstate hwy) but
as usual, not one stopped. I was doing 5-10 mph when the impact
occurred. Its pretty clear cut that she was at fault but her

Its her insurance that's going to pay. She was at fault. If
nothing else, I'll get enough out of it that I can do a full

We left about 10:00 pm. At about 1:30 the police woke me up at home and said my shop was on fire. They determined that hot slag was swept up and this caused the fire. Insurance company said I was under-insured and fined me 10% of policy. loss was 120,000.00 I was only insured to $60,000.00 they took $6,000.00 off the top. appraisers
took another 10% ($5,400.00) left me with $48,600.00 My buddies truck
was destroyed, along with the other guy's Dod*ge. My '73 bronco, and my
'84 ranger. really sucked!! put me out of business in a hurry!! Auto
policy would only pay blue book value.

My Insurance company had photo's of the truck and a copy of the
appraisal for $30,000.00....but still refused to honor it !!
Worst of all, the agent was my brother in law !!
maybe that's why I divorced his sister ???

Go to this site and see if you have all of the wiring correct.
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.wrljet.com/engines/duraspark.html
be sure all of the colors are correct I read somewhere that some
replacement wiring harnesses connectors were assembled incorrectly.

Good luck

Yep, the Ford dealer where I used to work installed radius arm bushings
with an offset hole. As you can imagine, it took some work to get them
installed but once they're in you have quite a bit of adjustment to work
with.

Good Luck!

Thanks to Barry and Stu for my engine ID. I believe that the V-8 =
replacement is a 351W, from the looks of it. I went to the Ford V8 =
workshop page to have a look. My engine ID tag is gone, but it doesn't =
look like a 302 or a 360 (I haven't even seen a 302 since my '70 =
Mustang, over 20 years ago!).

Anyway:

Thanks again!

Mike

Subject: AOD 351C match

OK. I've been religiously reading this group for 3 or 4 months now and I
am amazed at the amount of information that comes through here.

Now I have a question about something that has already been discussed, but
I may have missed something--the definitive answer to the question "Which
AOD is best suited (Bolt-right-up and stand up to the jack rabbit starts I
so enjoy) for the 351C, two-barrel in a 1962 Unibody with a (I think) a
Dana 44 limited slip rear end (3.25 by the good old
turn-the-tire-and-count-the-driveline-revolutions technique). I haven't
actually crawled under the truck to check, but I believe it now uses an FMX
that doesn't slip or anything, but I would like the extra gas mileage, if
possible.

The last I remember reading on this is that the 351C has the same bell
housing bolt pattern as the 301. Is that correct? Will a later model AOD
off a 301 fit? Will it hold up reasonably?

Thanks.
